15-year-old Toby Roberts has climbed Rainshadow 9a at Malham Cove, becoming the youngest Brit to climb the grade in the process. Toby is a GB Junior Climbing Team member and was European Youth Boulder Champion and placed 2nd in the European Youth Lead Championships last year (UKC News).
Well done Toby and Josh, its been really inspiring seeing you both trying so hard and encouraging and supporting each other at the crag. Especially with the poor conditions and short days and lateness of the season. A really mature and professional effort particularly as you are both so young, the future of GB Climbing looks bright in your hands.
